On the heels of last week’s release of their short film for Tyranny track “Human Sadness,” the acclaimed collaboration between Julian Casablancas, Nicholas Goossen and Warren Fu, Julian Casablancas+The Voidz are back today to announce that they will be touring North America this fall.
‘The Immaculate Powerlords Tour’ will see the band kick off the run at the storied Pappy & Harriet’s in the Mojave Desert and head up the West Coast before picking back up in Chicago in early October to hit the Northeast. The announcement comes in the midst of the band’s current European tour, which will see them play the Czech Republic, Croatia, Israel and Turkey (among other markets) before its close.

The New York Times praises Tyranny, for its “Screaming hardcore rock, pulsing electronics, twisted cabaret, soundtrack exotica and other possibilities”, while Rolling Stone calls the album “Wonderfully bizarre…vocals lurch from robosoul falsetto to death-metal howl; the vibe is dark and apoplectic…Not pretty, but more compelling for it.”
Tyranny is available now via Cult Records for $3.87 as a digital album download, as well as multiple physical configurations including double gatefold vinyl, CD, and cassette. Most notably, Tyranny is also available as a limited edition lighter sleeve containing the 12-track album as high quality MP3s on a built in USB flash drive. The first of its kind, the lighter sleeve features custom Julian Casablancas+The Voidz artwork and is available in white, black and yellow.
